The Friday Five

1. What are your personal superstitions?

I like to think that I’m not superstitious, except that I knock on wood and throw salt over my shoulder (should it be the right or left shoulder, I can never remember). I catch myself wanting to believe in ghosts and imaginary kingdoms. Then, there is that obsession with the number three that I have to contend with. I guess I consider myself a logical human being with an eye on superstition. Is it wrong that I accidentally pronounce it stupidstition sometimes?

2. What do you see when your eyes are closed?

I usually have one or two floaters in my eyes that I can see when I close them. When I meditate, sometimes I can see shapes in the dark. The most common is an hourglass shape followed closely by the Target logo. None of the people in my meditation class experienced anything similar, so I guess I’m just weird.

3. You’re a houseplant, what would you say about the humans in your house?

Laura never waters me or even really notices that I exist, but Mike is a God! He gives me water, protects me from little bugs and spiders, and fertilizes me regularly. He even bought a humidifier so that I’ll be happier in this <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags” />Utah desert. I just love Mike. We all do, really.

4. In my life as a vegetable, I’d be _________ because ______

In my life as a vegetable, I’d be a Rutabaga because that’s the funniest vegetable. The name is so fun to say. If you have to be a healthy root vegetable, Rutabaga is the one to be.

5. As a fruit, I think I’d be _______________ because _______

As a fruit, I think I’d be a Marion Berry because it doesn’t even exist. It’s always to fun to live your life as an imaginary fruit.

Man, the questions sucked today. Well, I guess unsatisfactory questions are better than no entry at all. Maybe not?
